    046: Removing the Pressure

    046: Removing the Pressure

    When you allow yourself to remove some of the pressure we put on ourselves, it can really fill our souls. In this episode, I’m talking about letting go of the pressure we feel to do and learning how to rest, take a break and give yourself that soul care you really desire. Nourishing yourself will allow for deeper creativity and a better you and that’s exactly why I am practicing what I am preaching and taking a summer break to rest and reset. 
     
    What you’ll find in this episode:
    A segment with my daughter about creativity
    Why I am taking a break this summer
    Why you should audit the things you are doing
    How to take the pressure off of yourself

So inspiring!

This is truly one of my all-time favorite podcasts! Each episode has been informative as well as inspiring. Lisa has a gift for sharing priceless mindfulness tips as well as encouraging creativity. The practical advice that she shares from her life coaching knowledge is so valuable! I always look forward to each new episode. Thank you!

Insightful and Inspiring

Listening to this podcast is like sipping a warm cup of tea, sitting by a crackling fire, or chatting with an old friend, leaning back in a reclining chair, or the aroma of comfort food wafting through the house.

In a world of endless books on increasing productivity, and videos showing us how to do anything and everything perfectly, Lisa’s message is to relax, have fun, and “allow yourself to be terrible” in your creative endeavors.

I love how she keeps it real, and encourages listeners to enjoy the process of bringing your creative self to life. Even if you don’t have interest in hand lettering or consider yourself to have any artistic talent, Committed to Create has an insightful, meditative quality that inspires mindfulness and a sense of self-kindness that is greatly beneficial and relevant to many different aspects of life.

You speak to my soul

I have listened to 3 podcasts that you were on and everytime I heard your voice it feels very familiar and very comforting. I don’t think it’s easy putting your heart out there I think it takes a level of vulnerability to truly connect with us. You have helped me in so many ways, you speak life to my soul and I just love who you are. It’s always a great listening to you and what you do. Thank you for taking the courage to do what you are doing because I have been grateful for it. It has helped me navigate ways of creating imperfectly.
Thank you Lisa.
